About the project
Sari-Saring Aralan is a 12-month community project that encourages the youth to pursue one of three pathways: education, employment, or entrepreneurship.
It uses the corner store as the hub of learning activities. Unlike the usual image of the sari-sari store as the place where aimless youth or “tambays” hang out, Sari- Saring Aralan transforms the community corner store as a venue where out-of-school youth can interact with teachers, mentors, and fellow learners.
